In case anyone is wondering how I can afford to keep buying dolls, a number of recent arrivals were funded by the departures of others. Those dolls who have found new homes over the past several months include Limhwa Luna, Limhwa To You Sara, Unidoll Anthony, Rosette Marguerite, Supia Yisol, Blue Fairy Tiny Fairy Jasmine, and Dream of Doll Twing-key. Not that any of them were unloved, only that they either did not quite fit into the collection or else did not speak to me on a personal and creative level. Currently listed on DoA’s Marketplace are Planetdoll Emma (I think I have a buyer), Souldoll Ahee (ditto, but for the body only), and Souldoll L-Heart. I will soon be adding Limhwa Limho Mono (tan version) and an Island Doll 41 cm girl body to the Marketplace. I'm torn, but Bambicrony Toto may be joining them.
--So who's the new girl? How did she come to join the family?
A week ago I received an email notice that extra Nelly dolls would be sold on the Jpopdolls website at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time that very day. That's 9:00 p.m. my time, and it was already 8:30 when I saw the message. I usually miss these special sales. Either I look in too late or I forget to look at all. This time, with only a half-hour to go, I determined to be at my computer at 9:00 on the dot, even if it meant cutting short a telephone conversation. (Sorry, Cheryl!)
|Nelly wearing Sweet Jane pattern from Adams-Harris.|
Her lemon yellow wig is from Custom House.
|Nelly's glass eyes look almost gray here, but they are a lovely light purple.|
The eyelashes are way too long. I'm going to have to change them. I don't
love the shape of this wig on her but the color is good. (Hiroki, from Jpopdolls.)
|Nelly's long wig is Jrock from Monique Gold.|
Layla is wearing Jpopdolls' Kye. The tulle
petticoat is meant to hang below the skirt.
|Oh-oh! Somebody pulled the old switcheroo. Now it's Nelly|
wearing Kye and Layla in the Custom House lemon yellow.
Bonus: the elf ears keep the hair out of her face.
|Looking a little bit like Planetdoll Emma here. I should|
have kept Emma-- she would have fit right in with Kaye's girls.

Nelly has a new wig from Jpopdolls. It's called Winter Angel and the color is Dark Chocolate. Now Layla has her Kye back and both girls are happy. Nelly also has new shoes, made just for her, from Jpopdolls.
